What We Do

*Changing lives through challenge and discovery for 50 years.*

We use the wilderness as a classroom to enable students (youth and adults, including active military personnel and veterans) discover the themselves, the world around them and their place in it. Through challenging experiences in unfamiliar settings, we enable people to discover and develop their true potential.
